What are the typical bladder infection symptoms? I think I have a bladder infection, but i'm not sure. What are some of the symptoms? Is it the same as a urinary tract infection?

In brief: Urinary

Urinary tract infection (UTI) and bladder infection are the same.
Symptoms include burning or stinging with urination, increased urinary frequency, difficulty starting the urine stream, and blood or discolored/smelly urine. Progressing signs to a kidney infection include fevers, chills, and low back pain. You should seek medical attention if you think you might have a uti, to be appropriately treated.
